Dear MARMAMers

Further to my previous message (below), please note that one of the links
was modified on the university website after I posted my message, so it no
longer works.

Here are the two links again:
- Information about the project is available here: Studying movements of
bottlenose dolphins with a spatio-temporal networks approach
<https://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/assets/university/schools/school-of-geography-and-sustainable-development/documents/prospective-students/Edwards%20PhD%20Competition_Dr%20Urska%20Demsar_Studying%20movements%20of%20bottlenose%20dolphins%20with%20a%20spatio-temp.pdf>
- For information on where and how to apply, please visit:

Apologies for the hiccup.


Tilen
